I think I'd like something with a bit more color, like these light robin's egg blue (officially called "slate") ones from World Market. They are velvet, and I think they would block out the light in the morning a bit better:
If we go with the bluer tones, though, I think that I'll need to re-cover our chair, which is now red. (it matches the pillow on the center of the bed, above.)I've been thinking that one of the following fabrics would be a good choice:
It's possible that the chair could be one of those prints, and then some of the pillows for the bed could pull in the others. I'm trying to get a good sense of what would be best. It might mean that I need to get the curtains in place first. Looking at the prints near the curtain color in this post, I'm thinking the middle fabric might be the best bet.
What do you think?
Do you have any big plans to update any of your rooms?
